Vincent Van Gogh

I chose this early drawing of a pond because it is one of Vincent Van Gogh's earliest works. He drew this rendition of a pond near his home and mailed it to someone and said that now he did not feel so helpless against nature because he could record its beauty. I like that this is possibly the first piece where he realized that he was artistic enough to accurately capture and image and he could be proud of his art work. He focuses on some of the details that really make up the piece in this drawing and he continued to do this in his art until he began gradually becoming more abstract with his landscapes toward the end of his life.
